Guestbook comments from the owner
Apartment was 5* Plus love the place and will definitely go back and I have been telling everyone how great it is. Colette & Shelia
We had a really good time – very relaxing! The location was fantastic with just a short walk to the restaurants etc but just far enough away to make it a really peaceful complex.I must also say that Bayram was really helpful too! Geoff
Had a fantastic holiday here. The apartment is excellent and the pool is wonderful! The BBQ is great and we used it while we were here. The apartment is well worth a visit and you can catch a dolmus to and from the bus station. We went on a boat trip and it was great. Food was really great on the boat. We went out for many meals at night.... Once again we had a great time here and you really do have a wonderful apartment. We will be in touch and would love to come back next year.

My husband and I spent 2 weeks here and were joined in the 2nd week by our daughter and her fiance, the apartment was spotless and spacious especially the massive terrace which had the sun all day, the pool was perfect and the gardens are lovely.10 minute easy walk into the town and the marina where you'll find plenty of lovely places to eat and drink. Elaine made All arrangements easy and Elaine at the complex was very helpful, I would highly recommend this apartment and wouldn't hesitate to book again, lynn and steve
What more could you want?
This is a lovely apartment, light, spacious and extremely well equipped. It has the best location on the site and gets sun all day on the large terrace. Our party of three were very comfortable here. The pool was fab, big enough to actually swim in and immaculately clean. It is surrounded by a shady garden where you can relax on a sunbed.
Yalikavak itself is great. A 5 minute flat easy walk from the apartment - just as stated in the listing. The town is a bustling place with lots of things to see and do and so many places to eat you are spoilt for choice. We had some lovely meals with plenty of fresh seafood, excellent kebabs and mezzes. The really nice thing for us was that Yalikavak felt lived in and not just a tourist resort, it had a real authenticity about it.
Don't miss a walk round the marina to see how the other half live, and we thoroughly enjoyed a boat day trip with lots of swimming and good food. We used the dolmus buses to get out and about, they were frequent, good fun and there was always someone willing to point us in the right direction.
Elaine was really helpful. When I made the booking I wanted to make sure it was the right place to take my elderly mother and Elaine answered all my questions both on the phone and by e mail. She also phoned us when we got back to see how we had got on - I would not hesitate to book this apartment again.

A wonderful apartment in a great location, equipped to the highest possible standards and very clean.
Just returned from our second visit and once again Elaine made sure that everything went smoothly from start to finish.
Would definitely recommend the apartment to our family and friends.
Will be back.
From the Owner
“Our first ever holiday to Turkey was in 2006, we stayed in Yalikavak and fell in love with it straight away. We had not planned on buying a property but suddenly found ourselves property hunting. Wishing Well ticked all the right boxes, main one being location. Our property has only previously been used by family and friends and really is home from home. We have had some great times since 2006 and have made friends of all different nationalities. We hope Yalikavak will prove to be a great holiday destination for you.”

“The grounds and pool are really lovely and the atmosphere is very relaxed & tranquil. Properties surrounding the complex are owned by Turkish and other Nationalities and it is a very friendly neighbourhood. If you want to keep fit, just a couple of minutes away is a Tennis club & Gym. We have done a short term membership for the gym in the past. The location is just perfect.”
